Keith Goudy, Ph.D.

Today’s executives face unprecedented challenges and demands on their time, energy and focus. Consequently, we require extraordinary leaders to address the unrelenting speed, complexity and scale inherent in today’s ultra- competitive business landscape and to, ultimately, connect us to our purpose.

Keith joined Vantage Leadership Consulting in 1997 and has devoted his career to partnering with organizations to select and develop the best leaders and enabling teams to achieve their potential.  He has served as the firm’s Managing Partner for the past five years.

Keith works with privately held firms as well as public corporations, representing diverse industries and scale of organization. He is passionate about helping executives make decisions about who to add to their teams and how to get those teams to identify an inspirational vision, a common purpose and a shared fate so that whole becomes more than the sum of its parts. He advises Boards and C-Suites on Succession and coaches senior leaders to take on new, big challenges. He serves on a Strategy Board Committee for Make-A-Wish in Illinois and is involved with other not for profit groups in Chicago.

Keith completed his undergraduate education at Pennsylvania State University and received his Ph.D. in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from DePaul University in Chicago. He has authored many articles and has been interviewed numerous times by the Wall Street Journal and other publications and outlets.

Keith likes to spend time with his family and hopes his two young, wonderful children will learn to enjoy skiing out west, riding bikes, playing tennis and learning piano and guitar. He loves music and literature, landscaping, and the Philadelphia Eagles.
